LinkedUp – Linking Web Data for Education Project
The LinkedUp project is a FP7 Support Action which pushes forward the exploitation and adoption of public, open data available on the Web, in particular by educational organisations and institutions.
To address these goals, LinkedUp provides a range of activities, including the establishment of the LinkedUp Challenge and a corresponding evaluation framework. These are aimed at identifying and promoting innovative success stories which exploit large-scale Web data in educational scenarios as part of robust applications and tools.
The project is made up of consortium partners each with respective roles in the LinkedUp project.There are also a number of associated partners with an interest in the project.The LinkedUp Challenge has an advisory board consisting of renowned experts in the fields of open data & data management, semantic web and web-based education.
Additional dataset curation activities will result in a repository and catalog of well-described and assessed datasets for educational purposes and will support participants of the data challenge, as well as interested data consumers and application developers in general.
The overall aim is to facilitate the development of innovative applications produced by the LinkedUp community and challenge participants and their deployment in real-world use case scenarios.
